…The NanoBrewMaster will turn you into a beer maker with ease?

Nano Brewing Technologies

You may remember “The Machine”, an All-In-One Beer Making Machine that automatically turned wort concentrate into beer in just a few weeks.

Well now it’s back, and it’s better than ever. Called “The NanoBrewMaster”, this all-in-one device brews, ferments, chills and then serves fresh, ice-cold beer on tap from the convenience of your own home.


With features like an onboard computer system that monitors and controls the introduction of water, extract, hops, yeast and optional ingredients, as well as heating and chilling, a stunning, stainless steel, hardwood, and recessed lighting design, the ability to brew up to 15 gallons per batch, and a Clean In Place system that self-cleans and sterilizes all connectors, containers and tubing with the flick of a switch, the compact and mobile NanoBrewMaster is at home as the centerpiece of any loft, home or bar.

…It’s Things Thursday: Draganflyer X6?

Draganflyer X6

The Draganflyer X6 “is a remotely operated, unmanned, miniature helicopter designed to carry wireless video cameras and still cameras”.

It’s also one of the most bad-add R/C copters ever made.

Draganflyer X6 Specs

Features include a six rotor co-axial configuration that makes the Draganflyer X6 compact, stable, and powerful, a full carbon fiber folding frame that also makes it light and easy to carry, and 11 on-board sensors that make the X6 the easiest copter to fly in its class, including three gyros, three accelerometers, three magnetometers, one barometric pressure sensor, and one GPS receiver.

Loose radio connection?

No problem; the Draganflyer X6 simply lands itself and waits for you to return.

Loose an engine?

Again, no problem. The Draganflyer is able to continue flying, even with one engine entirely out of commission.

With camera options that range from anti-vibration mounts and digital still camera holds to HD video, low light, thermal infrared and micro video cameras, there’s even a payload option to match every need.

James Bond, eat your heart out.

…It’s Things Thursay: Carma Sutra?

Carma Sutra

When I first saw the cover of this book, I though it was a well executed and well Photoshoped joke. Strangely enough though, it’s an actual book, with actual advice for how to get it on in (and possibly on) a car. Insights include the obvious, like avoiding gearshifts and seatbelts, to the more heavily researched, like the best cars (Lincoln Town Car, Volvo V70), and the worst cars (Honda Insight, Ford GT). There are illustrations and advice for over 20 makes and models, from compacts and sedans to hybrids and SUVs, and there are even two included double-page gatefolds for taxicab eroticism and limousine service. If you’ve been looking to rev up your sex life, then maybe this glove-compartment-sized guide is just the ticket. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.
